Before EmpowerMe, most of the families did not recognize their therapist as part of the care team. Our families feel comfort in knowing who is interacting with their loved one each day. The therapists are here every day to help drive the residents care plan and more importantly work to guide residents to stay active and engaged in their daily lives. Having EmpowerMe in our communities builds a strong sense of trust with our families. Building relationships and trust is the foundation for “Person-Directed Care”.
